  1. A: May I have your attention, please? Thank you for coming. We’re very glad you could make it. Tonight we are celebrating an agreement between A&A Limited and M&N Technologies, Incorporated to participate in a joint venture. ... and so it is an honor to introduce Mr. Tony Blair, president of A&A Limited.
B: Thank you, Dr. Lawrence. It’s a pleasure to be here. Ladies and Gentlemen, we at A&A are also excited about ...
(Half an hour later)
A: Thanks a lot Mr. Blair for a remarkable speech. Thank you.
B: Thank you, Dr. Lawrence. Thank you for your time.

  2. A: Hey, Nancy, is that you? I can’t believe it! Heard any good presentations?
B: Not one. None of them is my cup of tea. I’m bored to death.
A: Is that right? Why not?
B: You know, I’ve been working for over thirty years. There’s nothing new here. These presentations can’t tell me anything new. What’s worse is that tomorrow I’ll have a desk full of papers to work on. Say, you’ve just come back from the States, haven’t you?

  3. A: Isn’t that the guy my son is crazy about? But I never knew his name.
B: He’s Larry King, the famous talk show host who is a household name. He always presents quite a variety of points of view when you listen to him.
A: But, I’ve really got a thing about some talk show hosts. They sometimes are very rude to those who have opposing ideas.
B: I usually enjoy listening to them. I particularly like it when a caller disagrees with the host. I like to hear how he will defend his ideas.

  4. A: Say, Tom, I really enjoyed the piece you had in the paper last week. You’ve really worked your way up since I met you on Bob’s wedding day.
B: Thanks. I’m so flattered. But it’s always nice to have a pat on the back once in a while.
A: You deserve it. I can’t say that for all journalists, however.
B: I’m sorry to admit that many reporters are giving the profession a bad name.

  5. A: Judy, I’d like you to meet our new business associate. He will be responsible for the project of “Golden Apple” program.
B: Pleased to meet you, Mr. Wang. I’m happy to say that the project is now well under way. But we still appreciate your cooperation.

This is your life!
This is your life is one of the most popular small-talk programs on American television. Every week a leading personality is invited to a television studio, without knowing that he or she will be the subject of the program. The host starts the program with a short introduction and then meets the person at the entrance of a specified (指定的)studio and says, “This is your life!” The person then meets friends and relatives from his or her past in the very studio. Studio B is where today’s program is recorded. The program begins at 7:
  30. It’s 6:15 now and the director, Simon is checking the preparations with his production assistant, Amanda. The subject of tonight’s show will be a world-leading actor, Jackie Chan. The host, as usual, will be Larry King.
Simon: Let’s just check the arrangements. We’re bringing Jackie Chan here in a studio car.
Amanda: Is he informed what program he’s coming to?
Simon: No 行 he thinks he’s coming to a discussion program!
Amanda: Great! Now, the driver has been told to arrive at exactly 7:25, hasn’t he?
Simon: Right! The program begins at seven thirty. At that time Jackie will be walking to the studio. Larry King will start his introduction at 7:31, and Jackie will arrive at 7:
  32. Larry will meet him at the studio entrance ...
Amanda: Will Camera B be there?
Simon: Yes. Then he’ll take him to that seat. It’ll be on Camera A. Jackie will be sitting there during the whole program.
Amanda: Where will Larry be sitting?
Simon: For most of the show Larry will be standing in the middle, and he’ll be on Camera C. The guests will come through that door, talk to Larry and Jackie ... and then sit over there. Now, is that all clear?
Amanda: Yes ... there’s just one thing.
Simon: Well, what is it?
Amanda: Who’s going to look after the guests during the show?
Simon: Jason is.
Amanda: And where will they be waiting during the show?
Simon: In the dressing-room, as usual. Jason will be waiting with them, and he’ll be watching the show on the monitor. He’ll tell them two minutes before they enter.
Amanda: I think that’s everything.

Vocabulary Task
Script and Answers

  1. A: You look awful. What happened?
B: I have difficulty sleeping, and I’m anxious and depressed. I feel miserable. I’m dying for a vacation.
A: Maybe all that school work is too much for you. You may try meditation and cut back on fatty foods.
B: You’re probably right. I really need to try a different lifestyle.

  2. A: How do you like your life here?
B: Wonderful. People are friendly and foods are delicious.
A: It seems you are getting over your craving for McDonald’s.
B: That’s true. I’m used to a life without Klondike bars and the pancake house. What I really thirst for is a cappuccino after dinner.

  3. A: The recent survey found that youngsters are more concerned about finding work and earning money.
B: That’s understandable. I think today’s youths have a higher sense of independence.
A: Many older people say that young people are less prepared for adult life than previous generations.
B: I can’t agree. Maybe it’s due to the generation gap. I remember when I was young I was itching to leave home as soon as possible.

  4. A: You’re hanging out a lot. When will you be ready to start a family?
B: What for? I see little advantage in tying the knot. Look at my married friends. They used to be career-oriented but now they are tied to household drudgery.
A: Are you following the latest stay-single trend?
B: Yeah, I’d give anything to have my own free time, and it’s more relaxing to be alone.

  5. A: I am in the mood for traveling abroad, but I cannot afford it.
B: I have an idea. If you like to work with children, you can volunteer in Bali at a mountain village. I had a truly ideal experience there.
A: Marvelous! Tell me more about it.
B: I was a volunteer English teacher there last summer. It gave me a taste of life in a developing country. I learned the basics of a wonderful language. I had the chance to surf on the weekends, and I lived with an incredible family.

  1. By visiting a cyber café?

  2. No two cyber café are alike.

  1. To enjoy Internet café.

  2. Entering an Internet café is like taking a wee bite of a Big Mac to her.

  3. At Krakatit, you can surf the Web with a spaceship and talk to dragons and robots.

  4. Cyber café will soon be replaced by mobile phones with high-speed Internet access.
Script
Kept within a few clicks of hearth and home
In Rome, you can read your email while your dirty clothes wash, soak and dry in machines beside you. In Helsinki, you can surf the Web while still sweating from a simmer in a nearby sauna. Some people travel to sample the finest of foreign cuisines. Some seek sublime art to appreciate or sacred architecture to celebrate. Me, I’ve come to think of myself as an international connoisseur of Internet café.
In my past five months overseas, I’ve surfed the information superhighway in Swaziland, driven the data expressway in Estonia and cruised the communication causeway in Croatia. And I can say this: Gone are the days when postcards were the preferred method of making those at home envious of your adventures abroad. Set foot on the road to faraway places and you’ll soon find that cyber café are an inescapable part of the contemporary travel experience.
Just ask Michelle Amundson from Attleboro, Mass. I found this 23-year-old parked in front of a flat-screen monitor at Big Net café --the biggest Internet café in Vienna 行 exchanging love notes with her boyfriend back home. Michelle has been on vacation 10 days and has emailed him every one of them. Think of myself: My (much) better half is traveling with me and still of the 35 cities we’ve visited thus far, I’ve used cyber café in precisely
  71.4 percent of them.
When I left the US, I vowed I wouldn’t eat at a single McDonald’s no matter how cheap and soothingly familiar the food might be. I’ve stayed true to that promise. But I admit when I slip into an Internet café I feel just a wee bit like I’m taking a bite of a Big Mac.
I comfort myself, however, with the discovery that no two cyber café are alike. It’s hard to know where to begin in Prague, a city suffering a particularly virulent strain of cyber café-itis. At The Globe you can surf the Net while listening to a jazz trio. At Bohemian Bagel you can order up the namesake roll and a cup of joe along with a side of cyber crack. And at Krakatit, a “science fiction ” café you can surf the Web surrounded by pictures of dragons and spaceships and robots, oh my.
Some people predict that cyber café, like postcards, will soon find themselves a relic as mobile phones with high-speed Internet access replace them as the new traveler’s darling. That means no mat
